    If modern technology is causing men to be less masculine - what's modern technology doing to women?

    Re: Are men in the western world losing their masculinity?

    No. Western men are still as masculine as ever. I don't feel threatened by technology, I wield technology like a mighty falus and that makes me better than anyone else who doesn't.

    If anything, it's stupid people who are less "masculine" and less of anything in the western world. But stupid people have never been particularly masculine to begin with or alpha males.

    I said this before. Real men, alpha males, are not the hyped up stereotypical douchebags who lift weights and can't speak properly. That's the alpha male for stupid people. The real alpha male are men who know how to wield real power and technology is power. it always was and now it's more than ever.
    An intelligent man in a fit physical condition who has the right technological knowledge and is not a loudmouth douchebag about it, is the real alpha male, and has always been. And this is how it always was and how it will always be.

    This is what our society has sunk to. A hundred years ago this question would have been laughed at, because of it's petty nature. There appears to be more to this phenomenon then testosterone levels......it's society trying to get men to find their inner-girl. This whole idea of a gender-free society is misguided.

    Beyond the lion's share of power and influence, men aren't losing anything. Well, aside from the ever delightful desolation of our hairlines, but that's a man's cross to bear. An abundance of testosterone has its advantages.

    There were bound to be such ill-informed, reactionary concerns as women took their due place alongside us. Equality's a good thing, not a retrograde step. If you're a man who pisses and moans about some chimerical source of oppression or unfounded fears of imposed inferiority, you're no better than the weak-minded, fringe feminazis who are unable to think for themselves. Enjoy that.

    From what I've read, suspected culprits are chlorpyrifos, carbaryl, phthalates, and PPP. These are all chemicals found in pesticides and plastics which researchers believe could be leading to the changes.
    Nah, the simple answer to testosterone decline in the gen pop is obesity.

    Possible, but Americans were fat in the 80's too.

    They're fatter now. Depression is another cause that has increased in the last 30 years.
